I am in a similar situation. I also had my gallbladder removed, which was awful. I'm also a newlywed, 3 months in. My husband just says "you're perfect no matter what" which feels kind of like,a blow off. It is hard to get motivated, let alone stay motivated. My life is very full, I simply don't feel like working hard after a lobg day. It isn't much of an excuse, but I don't do those well. Maybe we can motivate each other?
What's problem with you?
